NEW YORK -- March 4, 2013

LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global
provider of content and technology solutions, today announced that it has
signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Rosen Technology Resources, Inc.,
to integrate Rosen’s Polaris and ALCoder software tools into the LexisNexis
suite of electronic discovery software products.

“These applications provide very advanced capabilities to litigation teams
during the early case assessment, processing and review stages of electronic
discovery,” said Matt Gillis, vice president and managing director of the
Litigation Tools & Professional Services business at LexisNexis. “In
particular, the email threading, near duplicate analysis and concept
clustering capabilities of Polaris will save our customers a great deal of
time and money by fully integrating this powerful tool into LAW PreDiscovery
and Concordance Evolution. Polaris and ALCoder are regarded as leading-edge
tools in their category, so the addition of this technology to our e-discovery
suite is a significant competitive advantage for us.”

Under terms of the agreement, Rosen’s Polaris and ALCoder tools will continue
to be sold on a standalone basis as well, but both will also be fully
integrated within:

  *LexisNexis Early Data Analyzer, which enables litigation teams to quickly
    capture an entire document set, assess the contents and then eliminate
    irrelevant documents prior to the more costly e-discovery phases of
    processing and review;
  *LAW PreDiscovery, software from LexisNexis that offers litigation teams
    the power to filter and cull non-responsive e-discovery and scanned
    documents before review; and
  *Concordance Evolution, the enterprise class review software product from
    LexisNexis for complete electronic discovery and litigation document

Polaris is regarded as a leading application in the fast-growing category of
“near duplicate” technology, which is designed to filter out irrelevant
documents from the e-discovery process by flagging documents that are nearly
identical. Polaris recognizes documents within an e-discovery collection that
it identifies as being similar — based on the parameters established by the
user — by evaluating the actual content of the documents. This is a crucial
technological capability because it speeds up review and ensures consistency
during the production process, which translates into reduced costs and greater

Polaris is also popular among litigation professionals for its “email
threading” functionality. The tool identifies, groups and provides a review
order of emails and attachments – and their entire threads – to allow users to
review email threads without having to examine each email separately. This
saves litigation discovery teams a significant amount of time by streamlining
the review of emails.

ALCoder is an automated coding application for litigation that is particularly
useful for scanned documents. The tool, which is one of the leading autocoding
software tools available in the litigation services market, is used by major
government agencies, law firms and corporate legal departments. By autocoding
discovery documents, ALCoder reduces time-intensive manual coding and costs in
the e-discovery process.

According to Gillis, the initial integration of the two software tools will
take place with LAW PreDiscovery and Early Data Analyzer and is expected to be
commercially available to customers in April 2013 as an optional module. The
integration with Concordance Evolution is planned for later in 2013.
